Primed for modern hard rock and metal, the Jackson Pro Series King V™ KVT, is a regal guitar designed to deliver giant, crushing tone.
The King V KVT offers premium features including a mahogany body, graphite-reinforced one-piece through-body maple neck with hand-rubbed oil back finish and wrap-around hee. Its 12”-16” compound radius ebony fingerboard features 24 jumbo frets, shark eye block inlays and single-ply white binding around the body, neck and Jackson pointed 6-in-line headstock.
Powered by a pair of brawny Seymour Duncan (JB bridge/'59 neck) humbucking pickups, this brutally powerful instrument delivers commanding punch while retaining clarity with enhanced note definition, a critical component for modern metal. The KVT also features single volume and tone speed knob controls, three-way toggle, radius compensated TOM-style bridge and an anchored tailpiece for laser intonation along the length of the neck.
Available in Snow White (chrome hardware) or 3-Tone Sunburst (gold hardware) with a matching headstock.

Seymour Duncan JB™ TB-4 / '59™ SH-1N Humbucking Pickups
It doesn’t get more classic than the JB / ’59 pickup combination. The incredibly popular JB pickup brings big, heavy sound, sustain and rich harmonics, while the ’59 offers sweet sounds and clarity. Put these two together to create the ultimate in versatility, capable of handling a wide spectrum of genres from country to blues to punk to metal. The pickups are mounted to the body for increased resonance and vibration transfer, adding more punch and sustain to your sound.
